Premarriage Issues - Property

Goldstein Law Offices " Highland Park, Illinois
Your Strong Advocate in the Courtroom

Most people do not like to think about the possibility of divorce before they have even gotten married. Preparing for the potential dissolution of a marriage, however, is the best way to ensure that your interests are protected in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial, or ante-nuptial, agreement can be drafted about almost any issue so long as the agreement does not violate public policy. At the Goldstein Law Offices, attorney Arnold Goldstein will ensure your interests are protected in your pre-marital planning and prenuptial agreements.

Goldstein Law Offices -- Experienced Highland Park Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

The Goldstein Law Offices offer aggressive and experienced family law representation to clients on Chicago's North Shore. One of the most effective tools at our disposal is a prenuptial agreement. Attorney Arnold Goldstein has been protecting his client's interests through the use of premarital contracts since their legitimacy has become settled law.

A carefully drafted prenuptial agreement can be the best way to protect pre-existing (non-marital) property and assets if there is a divorce, as well as designate how property acquired in the future should be distributed. It can protect the rights of children from a previous marriage, and offer legally enforceable provisions giving them inheritance rights. If there is a family business, a prenuptial agreement may be the best way to insure that family interests are protected.

A prenuptial agreement can also outline spousal maintenance and alimony and child custody. A premarital agreement can determine the amount of alimony, waive alimony, or provide a twilight provision to waive it after a designated number of years. Some elements can be precatory (wishful). This means they are based on planned possibilities, such as having children, that are unfulfilled at the time of the agreement.
